Blessing of the Jeeps

Posted: Updated:

Tires were deflating, sand was flying and people got stuck at the 12th annual Blessing of the Jeeps in Mesick.

More than 1,300 jeeps gathered today to join together in prayer.

A blessing was said for the jeeps and drivers for a fun and safe season off road.

Crews set up 3 obstacle courses that were packed with jeeps the entire day.

The event grows bigger every year. Only 45 jeeps participated the 1st year and now 11 years later, thousands show up to get dirty.

Next weekend the Mother's Day Mud Bog will be held at the same location in Mesick.
